Paper Title:
High-Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy Study of WC-Co Alloy doped with other Metal Carbides; VC, Cr3C2, and ZrC
  Abstract

The WC/Co interface structures in WC-Co alloys doped with VC, Cr3C2 or ZrC were examined by high-resolution electron microscopy (HRTEM) and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) with a special interest in the segregation behavior of respective dopants at the WC/Co interfaces. It was confirmed that the addition of VC or Cr3C2 were effective to reduce WC grain size while that of ZrC was not. In case of VC or Cr3C2-doped alloys, the morphology of WC grains largely changed comparing with undoped and ZrC-doped alloys. The WC/Co interfaces of the two alloys tend to form micro facets with (0001) and {1010} habits. EDS analysis with a sub-nano scale probe revealed that the dopants strongly segregated at the two habits. In contrast, such morphology change, and also dopant segregation, could not be observed in ZrC-doped alloy. In our study, doped ZrC was not found to solute in Co-phase. Doped ZrC distributed in Co-phase to form other grains mainly consisting of ZrC. The interface structures of WC/Co could be considered to be closely related to the inhibition effect to WC grain growth.
